Vatican is Now Selling $110 ‘Click to Pray’ Wearable Rosary

It doubles as a fitness tracker too!

  • It’s easily activated by making the sign of the cross.
  • It sports a cool and elegant design – a cross in the middle of ten beads, made of hematite and agate.
  • It can also track your steps taken and calories burned.

The Vatican is making sure they are keeping up with the times and making the faith accessible to everyone, especially the younger people. It has just launched the eRosary, a device that can be worn as a bracelet and controlled by an app.

So one activates the “Click to Pray” eRosary by doing the sign of the cross, just like how one would do before using an ordinary rosary. Upon activation, you can choose between three praying options: the standard rosary, the contemplative rosary, and the thematic rosary.

The sleek and functional eRosary, Vatican-approved.
The sleek design features a smart metal cross among a string of ten black beads.
These are made of hematite and agate.
The bracelet comes in a box designed to look like a bible.
The charger included can also be used as a display stand.

These prayer options will be updated every year. Synced with the smartphone app, the user can track his progress each prayer and monitors each rosary that he has completed. The user can also join Click to Pray’s “social media platform.”

Bonus features include health data tracking – number of steps that the user takes during the day and calories burned. This encourages the faithful to not just worship but also keep a healthy lifestyle.

The Holy See’s press office described the device this way:

“Aimed at the peripheral frontiers of the digital world where the young people dwell, the Click To Pray eRosary serves as a technology-based pedagogy to teach the young how to pray for peace, how to contemplate the Gospel.”

The product, which is produced by GadgeTech Inc, is priced at $110. It is part of the church’s efforts to reach the Gen-Z and tech-savvy millennials. According to the press release from the Vatican, the eRosary functions as a “tool for learning how to pray the rosary for peace in the world.”
